Bought my xl2420g last week and its really not cutting it. When in gsync mode the colors suck, very little adjustments when on that engine. The classic mode is much better. That said, I was going to return it and get the LG 24GM77. I saw Viewsonic has a decent solution out also ViewSonic XG2401. Was curious your thoughts on the the Viewsonic compared to the LG

The Viewsonic is a Freesync Monitor, Your current one is a G-Sync and the Ben-Q is neither, do you need Adaptive Display tech?. Adjustments to the image should be available through the NV control panel as well btw. The LG uses PWM lighting which can cause headaches, the Viewsonic doesn't. i don't have the Lg but I do have the VS so feel free to ask any questions.

With g sync engine on the colors suck. and the horizontal lines bother me.Ive been running in classic mode engine just bc the picture is better. Figure if the viewsonic without free sync on has better picture than the benq, id consider that

The LG does not use PWM and is flicker free. Its also easily the best 24" 1080 144hz TN panel you can buy. From my understanding the monitor has been discontinued and while there is still plenty of stock floating around, prices will surely go up in due time.

Seriously man, I don't know why you'd think twice about going with the VS.... even if you have an NVIDIA card, the input lag is WAY LOWER than the LG panel and you might as well get some Adaptive-Sync tech for yourself for later (just in case...). The price is amazing as well, just see for yourself.

I just got the xg 2401 in today and the measurements look very good for a TN panel after calibration, pre-calibration is certainly good enough for gaming I'd say. Input lag is definitely low when set to "ultra fast".

This is impossible, but it does not surprise me that a Toms Guide review fan would post this. The LG's measured signal delay is negligible. We can argue about adding half the measured pixel response time for a total lag value, but even if this is done the total delay amounts to a whopping (sarcasm) 3.4ms (negligible).

Can you screen shot the pre-calibrated gamma results? The 1080p 144hz TN panels gamma is usually way too low (AOC G2460PF, Asus VG248QE) or way too high (Acer GN246HL and BenQ XL2411Z & XL2430T).

Changing monitors overdrive settings usually has no perceivable and barely a measurable effect on input lag. Ultra Fast likely just adds excessive overshoot ghosting (transparent, dark and colored glow which forms around movement) which you can check for here: http://testufo.com/#test=ghosting

Google (insert monitor) review before making a thread about it. Research (Google) before buying a monitor and then asking if it is good.

10 Bit Monitors: 99% are 8 bit+FRC and AMD Quadro or Nvidia Firepro gpu's are required to send+receive a true 10 bit signal. 10 bit consumer content (games, movies TV) does not exist.

I wasn't talking about overdrive, that is controlled by the "response time" setting and changing THAT setting to "ultra fast" does indeed add a lot of overshoot.
The "input lag" option is separate and I didn't notice any worsening of the image quality when changing it.

Those are fantastic gamma results on par with the LG. Thanks to you we now know the Viewsonic (assuming there's no panel lottery) is the best 1080p 144hz TN panel in terms of pricing and all around performance.

I thought you were referring to the overdrive setting since I didn't know the Viewsonic had an input lag setting. The lag setting was likely included for marketing purposes.
